  • Scouts Learn to Make Ice Cream

    Sandown Cub Scout Troop #268 recently visited Beyond Vanilla I Scream Parlor in Hampstead to learn how to make ice cream. Not only were the owners enthusiastic about the visit, they put on quite a show with an ice cream sundae building contest (complete with blindfolds), and then treated the boys to ice cream following the festivities. Beyond Vanilla is a locally owned establishment and the owners are very community oriented. The boys had a blast and want to thank Beyond Vanilla for their generosity.
